All of our products are carefully crafted for long-lasting beauty and life. With proper care and maintenance, your furnishings can look as good as they did the day you received them, for years to come. Here are a few easy tips to get you started.
Wood is a natural material, which can be affected by changing humidity, direct sunlight and normal wear and tear. Expand your furniture's lifetime by following these guidelines and see our care instructions. Also It is important to understand its unique properties; which should not be mistaken for flaws:
Natural Material - Wood is a natural material with variations of color shade, configuration, streaks, and grain structure. Just as trees in the forest are not the same, each individual piece of KREA furniture has characteristics markings that will differ from website photo and showroom samples.
Variation in colour, shading and grain between different products and within the same product can occur; this is a normal feature of all natural wood furniture. Each piece will have a slightly different grain pattern.
Knots: Knots are a natural property of all real wood furniture; they do not affect performance, and add interest to each piece rather than looking like a laminate.
Medullary Rays: These markings are created where wood is cut across the grain producing interesting features such as growth rings and flecks. Each ring denotes the age of the tree in terms of number of years.
Quality Control: Quality control allows blemishes, knots and less than perfect color in places not exposed to view after assembly. These do not affect the integrity or beauty of the finished piece of furniture. There also may be variations in the color and darkening of individual pieces of wood. Our craftsmen make every effort to match grain and color within each piece of furniture, however, we cannot guarantee they will match perfectly as they age.
Humidity The tendency of wood is to move with changes of heat and humidity. The pores breathe and try to take on the humidity of the surrounding air. This means that wood will dry in and contract in winter. Conversely, it will take on moisture and swell in the summer months. Our craftsmen have designed the furniture to allow for these seasonal changes – holding which will cause cacks at unexpected places.
These natural changes in humidity and movement can be especially prevalent in large panels, such as table tops, and even more so near the end grain of the wood, since those are the pore openings through which the moisture moves. On a solidwood dining table top, for example, the ends of the panels will expand more than the center in the summer and contract more in the winter. This results in minor separations between the leaves of the table as the seasons change. This is not a defect—it is characteristic of solid wood furniture. “Fixing” the problem one season by straightening the edges will only result in a worse problem during the following season. Please understand the limitation of wood and enjoy the process as it breathes along with you.
Sun bleaching will occur when wood furniture is exposed to sunlight. This will cause darker finishes to lighten and sometimes cause lighter finishes to darken. For this reason, try to avoid placing furniture in direct sunlight and rearrange accessories from time to time to prevent spot bleaching. Some bleaching will occur under both incandescent and fluorescent lighting. Arrange your furniture so that it does not sit near heat registers, air-conditionings units or radiators. It is important to keep the home or office in which your furniture is placed properly humidified. Lack of humidity, usually in the winter months or in dry climates, can cause certain veneers to crack or check, and joint to work.

Suede surfaces should only be cleaned with a dry, stiff brush. Exposure to liquid spills should be avoided since suede cannot be washed or cleaned like leather.
